Copying An Audio Cd Not So Straightforward


Mike4Online
 Share

Question

I am running Roxio Creator Starter 2012 on a relatively new Dell PC, under Windows 7 64-bit. I am having a few difficulties copying an Audio CD:

 

1) When I first insert the Audio CD and launch Roxio Creator Starter 2012, the program first shows a screen where I can drag the audio tracks to rip them. I would rather the program begin on Creator's "Home" page, or show all the various actions available for an Audio CD, rather than assuming I want to rip tracks. Is there any way I can prevent Creator from guessing that I want to rip tracks?

 

2) Is there a command line parameter for launching Roxio Creator Starter 2012, that would initiate an audio CD copy process? If not, is there another way to initiate an audio CD copying process, e.g. perhaps a right-click context menu option somewhere within Creator or in Windows Explorer?

 

Thanks very much,

- Michael

You Dell oem version is a cutdown/basic version of the full retail Roxio version ( http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/creator/suite/overview.html )

 

Contact Dell.....Dell's OEM versions are made to Dell's specs., and Dell provide all the support for them.

 

Most of the the users on here have the full retail version with ALL the features so we cant help too much with Dells version.

In theory, Dell supports Roxio Creator Starter 2012, but in practice, the Dell support staff don't know this program. I have tried contacting Dell regarding Roxio questions, with no success.

 

The Starter Edition is likely the same code as the Regular Edition, with certain features disabled. But I cannot be sure of this, since neither Dell nor Roxio provide the details of the differences between Roxio Creator Starter 2012 and Roxio Creator 2012. As an end user, I am left in the dark, and not sure what I would get if I were to pay for the upgrade to the full Roxio Creator 2012 software. Do you know of a link to a web page that details the differences?

 

In any event, please let me know whether Roxio Crerator 2012 (the full version) can be configured so, when you put in an Audio CD and then launch the Creator software, the program would present action choices for an Audio CD and not assume I wanted to rip tracks. Likewise, does the full version of Roxio Creator 2012 offer command line parameter or context shortcut for easily duplicating an audio CD. If the ful version has such capabilities, I might consider upgrading my Dell OEM version.

 

Thank you,

- Michael

This is the Home Screen when you launch C2012 (I believe you should have basically the same when you launch your Starter version)

This is the screen you get when you select Music-Audio from the Home screen

There are no command line parameters or context short cuts.

 

BTW, what various actions are you looking for?

Since you own Dell Roxio Creator Starter 2012 and you seem like some kind of software sage. Please read about C2012 and C2012 Pro at the link below then compare them to what you have and know. Things should be clear as fresh clean glass for you after that.

Thanks for the link. A shame it doesn't list the Starter edition.

The feature I need is Copy Disc, which I can get from the Home screen or the Music Audio screen. The issue is that I don't get either of these screens when first starting the program (after insertiong an audio CD). Instead, I come to a screen prompting me to drag tracks to rip them, with no obvious way to cancel the operation (simply clicking Home effectively cancels out of this rip screen). I am looking for a way to avoid the rip screen entirely when starting Roxio, so the program is easier for others to use.

 

It appears there is no way to disable the automatic rip prompting.

You keep stating that you first insert the disc and then start the program. What happens when you first start the program and then insert the disc? Does it also switch to the "Rip" feature?

 

I don't have the "Starter" program so I don't know if that is how it is supposed to behave. It certainly does not in the full C2012 version.

Mike: I Believe you are describing the Roxio Burn App...

 

I have mine disabled and don't have screen cap of it. However, its' behavior is to Pop Up whenever a disc is inserted and offer suggestions based on the type of disc it encounters.

 

"Easy" to disable - Start, type in msconfig, go to the Startup tab and clear the check box by Roxio Burn...

While your in there, might as well go under Services tab and stop the Roxio Hard Driver Watcher 1x as well ;)

Close out, reboot and slap in a disc!

 

That should give you most of what you want.

 

...

 

On the Other Hand... isn't there a 'Menu' with Roxio Burn that would allow you to select Copy??? :huh:

 

It might turn out that it is offering almost everything you actually want, if you look a little deeper -_-
